Tally Ho! Productions is a Cape Town-based production company. At Tally Ho! Productions we believe in collaboration and inclusion, we believe in bringing together talented individuals to create art that will last and speak to our unique South African audience.
We work to present a diverse portfolio of work that draws from the kaleidoscope of South African cultural streams, without compromising on the individual artistic integrity of each show. By having a varied portfolio we aim to build a new audience that shares and celebrates our values of inclusion and appreciation of all South Africans.
We believe in narrative and storytelling. The purpose of theatre lies in its power to shift perspectives, grow empathy and inspire us all to live to a higher more compassionate standard. To this end, we ensure that our productions are a holistic experience of the highest quality.
We tell our stories from the moment the audience member arrives in the theatre foyer to when they leave the auditorium, whether it is musical theatre, intimate drama, music concert, or a celebration of song and dance.
“A masterpiece of modern musical theatre.”
Winner of a Drama Desk Award and named one of TIME Magazine’s 10 best shows of 2001, Jason Robert Brown’s The Last Five Years has captivated audiences with a score of mesmerising brilliance and an ingenious libretto. An acclaimed film adaption in 2014 and numerous international productions established the musical’s place as a masterpiece of
modern musical theatre.
“All I could do was love you . . . and let you go.”
The Last Five Years is a one-act drama-comedy telling the story of the short-lived marriage between Catherine Hiatt, a struggling actress, and Jamie Wellerstein, an up-and-coming novelist on the brink of getting his big break. This story of two people meeting at the wrong time in their lives is told in a fresh and new manner. Cathy tells their story backwards from the end of their relationship to first meeting, whilst Jamie proceeds chronologically. They meet only once, in the middle of the show.
“Featuring incredible local talent.”
Featured in the coveted roles of Jamie and Cathy is Fleur Du Cap-winning actor David Ralph Viviers, and Fleur Du Cap nominee Zoë McLaughlin. At the helm of the creative team is award-winning director Paul Griffiths with musical direction by Jaco Griessel and production design by Jaco Griessel and Paul Griffiths. To fully realise Jason Robert Brown’s vision, the cast will be accompanied on stage by an ensemble of six musicians.
